I have been practicing hatha yoga since 1998, beginning in college at Indiana University, Bloomington. While I felt a kindred connection with yoga immediately, my practice didn’t become a central part of my life until 2005 when I discovered Bikram Yoga during a winter hiatus in Truckee, CA. Instantly I became happily entrenched in the Bikram Yoga practice and community. After 4 years of regular practice and traveling I finally attended the Spring 2009 Bikram Yoga Teacher Training and returned to my home studio in Truckee, CA to teach. Work pulled me away to do more traveling after a year of teaching in Truckee. I would travel, work and practice/teach in local studios as I went (the beauty of Bikram Yoga). Traveling for my work has enabled my yoga experience in many ways – provided connection to many amazing yogis and yoginis, opened the door to compete in yoga competitions and participate in special community events. Three-and-a-half years ago I finally landed in Denver, CO with my husband Jeremiah and two amazing sons. We are here to stay … for a while. Life is full and blessed and I am so happy to be a part of this yoga community with each of you!
